Honey & Balsamic Roasted Brussel Sprouts

The much maligned Brussel Sprout is probably the most disliked vegetable on the planet.  In my family, only my husband and my mum love them – and they like them plain – no disguises or extra flavours to hide the distinctly ordinary taste – just steamed or boiled suits them fine…

Well – I think they are in serious need of some help and when I make them using this recipe, even I go back for a second helping.  Tart and sweet this is a lovely way to cook sprouts and roasting them gives an intense flavour which is lost amongst the boiled and steamed method…

The amount of honey and balsamic is up to you – I find myself talking in terms of “a generous splash” or “a big squeeze” when describing the quantities – try it to your own taste and see how you go…  One thing is certain – you will never go back to those insipid greenish balls of mush ever again…
